As mentioned previously, cover crops help prevent soil erosion. Some gardens (especially those located in hilly or mountainous areas) may have a problem with this, and planting cover crops after you harvest is a great solution. Cover crops also work well as a weed barrier. They prevent weeds from taking hold in the area simply because they were there first, meaning they can monopolize the nutrients that weeds need to survive. One thing to be mindful of is that some of your cover crops could start acting like weeds and take over your garden if not they're not harvested before going to seed.
The late fall is the best time to take cuttings from your dormant deciduous trees and plants. Why? Since these trees tend to go dormant during the winter, it becomes less damaging to take cuttings from them. The best part is, cuttings are a cost-effective way to increase the number of plants in your garden. You can use them to propagate a number of new trees, crops, and flowers, including forsythia, figs, mulberries, pomegranates, grapes, kiwis, roses, and clematis. Whether you’re propagating cuttings to create a garden oasis on your own property or doing so for neighbors, friends, and family, it's important to know how to take cuttings from your trees and plants.
